Property description

80 yards from the waterfront, this 3-bedroom cottage has everything you need for the perfect getaway. The property comes fully furnished.

The cottage features three bedrooms. Two bedrooms have a queen bed, and the third bedroom has a trundle bed. The cottage can comfortably sleeps 8 comfortably (6 adults plus 2 children). The cottage also has a full, ready-to-use kitchen; you only need to bring the food and drink. This property also features a wood fireplace for those cold winter months.

Come and enjoy access to one of the most beautiful beaches on Lake Michigan. Indiana Dunes State and National Park are also nearby, as well as numerous restaurants and shopping.

If you are coming from Chicago and looking for a beach getaway, you simply cannot beat Miller Beach. The trip to Miller Beach from Chicago takes less than an hour in good traffic. Miller Beach is the closet beach community to Chicago, and it is also one of the most pleasant.

Just spending time on the beach would be enough to justify a trip to Miller Beach. But there is also so much more to do in the immediate area. To begin with, there is Indiana Dunes State Park. Just a few minutes from Miller Beach, this State Park features the best trails in Northern Indiana and dunes unlike anywhere else in the Midwest. Exploring and climbing dunes is enjoyable for all ages; you feel like you are in a completely different, more exotic part of the country.

This cottage would also make the perfect headquarters for a fishing expedition. Fifteen minutes from the cottage is one of biggest Bass Pro Shops I have ever seen. Also, the area is full of rivers, small lakes, and, of course, Lake Michigan.

Owner info

Why the Owner Chose Miller Beach:
I absolutely love Miller Beach and I feel like I have a very special, warm place from which to enjoy it. Unfortunately, I can only spend so much time at Miller Beach. So I might as well allow others to share my great experience.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The fenced in yard is ideal for children (and with approval) small dogs. it features a BBQ, hammock, out door furniture, patio with table and beautiful garden.
